The Cook.A girl attends a rave, and is given a drug of some sort, which causes her to freak out and get hit by a car. Her friends decide to throw a memorial party at an abandoned park; unfortunately, their chosen campsite is near a shack occupied by the titular Cook, who doesn’t seem to be happy about a gaggle of drunken twenty-somethings invading his space. Or maybe he is, because he spends an awful lot of time killing them.
If the plotline of The Cook sounds familiar and hackneyed, there is good reason: there is nothing here that hasn’t been done countless times before, and done much better. The principal issues with this film are cohesion and clarity, primarily with the title character. The Cook makes drugs and watches soap operas in his shack; has flashbacks to a religious upbringing and a family murder/suicide, may or may not be able to summon snakes, may or may not be able to become a goat-man, may or may not project himself into the aforementioned snakes, may or may not be a supernatural entity and, at a most improbable ending, may or not be the Messiah. We have no idea what drives the title character to make his drugs, what compels him to kill, why he is the way he is and we simply aren’t made to care. When creating a character such as this, it is an absolute necessity to delineate that character fully; to leave it so ambiguous is a fatal error.
